If March came in like a lion, it was a big white fluffy snow cat with slush around the edges, one of those days when it is safer to walk than ride.
This photo was snapped on my way home from the Circle store. I am still in hibernation mode, rarely leaving my apartment building and then only to wander the streets of DoYo in search of provisions, to use an old west phrase. Coffee shops sell good beans. Circle sells bread, eggs, milk, cheese, assorted canned goods, everything to make a pot of chili except the beef. The only raw meat downtown is rolls of ground turkey or sausage. I’m so hungry for beef that I bought a can of Goya corned beef.
We really need some meat down here. I would love it if someone opened a combo butcher baker shop in downtown Youngstown. Yes, one little store selling raw meat and a variety of fresh baked breads.
Hey, why not?
If they can’t find a full fledge grocer willing to open a store downtown, why not aim for a small specialty shop? Meat would not have to be cut on site, bread can be baked elsewhere… add a deli case with roast beef and turkey and pastrami, maybe sell some sandwiches and packaged salads… it could make a go.
I think that’s the issue keeping plans and rumors of plans on hold… not enough residents living down here yet to warrant opening a real grocery store.
I’m just craving some beef and dreaming out loud. Guess a walk up to Martini’s for a burger will solve that problem. Thanks for reading!
